If you live in Malaysia, or if there’s just something about the slaughter of people you just can’t accept, you might like to sign this:
Tony Blair Is NOT Welcome To Malaysia Unless It’s To Stand Trial For The War Crimes He Stands Accused Of Petition to Malaysian People, Parliament, Courts and Immigration Service.
We the undersigned declare Tony Blair is:
a) A suspected war criminal.
b) Not immune from prosecution for his alleged crimes.
c) Jointly responsible for the deaths of over a million innocent civilians.
d) Not welcome in Malaysia unless it’s to enter a court of international law to be tried for the war crimes and crimes against humanity for which he stands accused.
Signatories call for:
 i) The Malaysian Authorities to declare Tony Blair “persona non grata”, thereby refusing him entry into its territory (scheduled between 23rd to 25th April 2010).
ii) Richard Tan, CEO of “Success Resources”, and upon the National Achievers Congress (NAC) to withdraw their shameful invitation to Tony Blair to speak at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre, allowing Blair to make financial gains from his deadly decisions.

From Akmar
What is this all about? 
Well, to put it in a simpler sentence, Success Resources is holding  National Achievers Congress (NAC) at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre in April 2010 and guess what, they are inviting Tony Blair as their speaker!
This will mean that the man who thought he managed to deceive the world by sending troops to unnecessary countries  (read Iraq and Afghanistan) and committed massive murder will be giving a talk on "achievers".
Bizarre enough?
And so, this petition calls for the declaration of Tony Blair as "persona non grata" thus denying him entry into Malaysia and preventing him from speaking in the congress. The petition also demand that Success Resources withdraw their invitation to Blair as a speaker in their congress.

The Watch Story

I was given a watch as my UPSR gift from my mum. It was a POLO watch, the first expensive watch i owned. My watches before that were those Sailormoon, Power Rangers pasar malam watches. I still have the receipt and  the watch box with me till now. *Yea i know, i'm just too sentimental to throw them away*

Anyway, the watch cost my mum RM39.90 (only?) in November 2001 and i really treasured the watch. The next year, i went to a district level girl guide camping with few other friends and teachers. It was a 3 days 2 nights camping. On the last day, in the toilet, i took the watch of my hands to shower, and put it next to my other stuff. And i forgot to wear it back after bathing. I went out of the toilet and go for the closing ceremony.

As usual, during and after the closing ceremony of a camp, participants will exchange numbers and addresses so that we can keep in touch with each other (frankly, i forgot where i put all the numbers).
Moments before going into my teacher's car to go back to school, i realised i wasnt wearing my watch, and i remembered vividly putting it next to my pants in the toilet, but i cant remember taking it back. And that was at least 4 hrs ago. The journey back to school was delayed bcos of me. I ran back to the toilet to look for the watch, and i went to look at other places as well. My friends helped in the hunting mission but all of us failed in agony.

And so, i sadly board the teacher's car and head back home. I cried along the way back, and fell asleep.
When i woke up, my eyes were sore, and i remembered back why i cried and tears started to drop again. When my parents fetch me from school, i cried telling them i lost the watch. At home, i cried again praying hard i'll find the watch. I dont even mind if i find it on the day i die. That was the extent of my imagination then...

Currently, i am wearing the watch my mum bought for me before i started my A Levels 3 yrs back, and i'm determined to use it until i finish my medical degree. Really hope i can take good care of the watch this time...

The Motorcycle Story

My mum has been using my car for more than a week now, her car went into "ICU".
And so, since she can't send me to campus, my dad needs to.
And my dad rides a motorbike everyday to work.
This brought us to one simple fact, "I've been going to IMU by motorbike for two consecutive days!"
The last time i went on a motorbike, if i am not mistaken was when i took the license, almost 3 yrs back. And so, the first journey ystrday was really exciting and scary.
It was so cold, my legs felt numb, but adrenaline is circulating in high amount in my body that cant stop myself from grinning along the journey, really..
I made few funny faces, playing with the muscles of the face and getting buccal tired by the time i reached IMU. =)

On exam day...
Summative on Friday, 12th March.
I fell sick.. Great...
I cant really answer my paper, slept right after i finished answering, didnt even had the energy to check my answers.... *this could actually be a psychogenic illness but...........*

Post exam syndrome...
I know very well that i didnt do my best for the summative...
But as usual, i dont really sulk over it. This just mean that i need to strive harder for the next exam lah...
This weekend is one of my free-est weekend.
I didnt study at all, only did some of notes organising work, to prepare myself for the coming system, Haematology.

I went to Mines on Saturday, to Metro Kajang on Sunday. I actually planned to watch movie with my sis in Jusco tonight (Sunday) but she's too tired to accompany me (she had just came back from a state level competition in Banting for 2 days). At first i wanna watch Little Big Soldier but, the movie is no more on screen... =(
That's the disadvantage of delaying watching movie session, the movie is no more on screen, to buy the ori DVD, it's too expensive, pirated ones dont come in good quality. Haiz...  I heard Alice in Wonderland is a nice fantasy movie, maybe i'll persuade sis to go watch with me, if she has the time and mood (i'm starting to wonder who's the elder sis and who's younger now).

I printed a bundle of notes for the week early this morning, and i'm kinda highly motivated now, want to start a new chapter in my semester 3, to excel in exam... We'll see what i'll be writing here a week before the next summative k, most probably i'll be complaining of lack of preparation... Hahahaha...

Now is 9.06pm and 12hrs from now i should be in IMU lib, to start my day studying hard...again...
Ok, enough of rantings...

Yea...only 5 days left for my summative 3...
God, i really am not ready for it yet..
I'm drained..
I heard this exam will be making 12.5% of my semester exam! Duh, that's a lot man...
I cant be playing this time, my result will determine my placement for the country i'm going for PMS.
I had nvr had the confident to say it out loud in case i couldn't make it.
But yea, i think i shd be saying it out loud now. A booster for me to achieve higher...


Now, i really need to study and push my way through this summative and score well for end of sem exam.

p/s: to Diana Rizal, sorry but ur birthday falls on my summative day. I dont hv time to buy any present yet, but be assured, i'll go for a nice "shopping and jalan2" during the weekend and come back to u with a gift on Monday the 15th. At first nk pretend tp forget ur birthday but since u know i didnt forget, i decided to announce it here je la.. Hahahaha...

Assalammualaikum wrt wbt.
Remember PMR History syllabus?

Parameswara, the Prince of Palembang which was ruled by Majapahit, ran to Temasik (Singapore).
There, he was treated nicely by Temagi, the ruler of Temasik. At that time, Temasik was under the power of the Siamese.

Now, what happened then?
The history goes that Parameswara killed Temagi, to get Temasik under his rulings.
But when Siam got to know that their representative, Temagi was killed, thet sent a troop to Temasik to capture Parameswara.
Parameswara then ran to Malaya and settled down in Malacca.
He built an empire in Malacca, and later started sending "protection money" to Siam so that they wont come and attack Malacca.

Now, time to think (or maybe imagine....)
Parameswara, the prince who managed to build Malacca, must be a smart man.
Even if not very smart, he can't be stupid, can he?
Why then, did he "foolishly" kill Temagi to get Temasik? Obviously he knew that Temasik is under Siam's ruling, and Siam was a VERY powerful country at that time, why then did he find trouble?
There was no way he can escape from killing Temagi could he?

Now, imagination comes in.
Who knows, Temagi actually flirted with Parameswara's wife or perhaps daughter at that time...
Then Parameswara was challenged, and killed Temagi.
Sounds logic right?
It's just like those Chinese Dynasties. The history is one thing, the story behind it is another.
Be it the admiral fell in love with the enemy's princess, or one of the 500 emperor's concubines.
Or one of the concubines tried to kill the empress to get the emperor's attention.
Or one of the princes tried to overthrow his own father so that he can be crowned.
Or anything at all.... (ok ok, maybe this is kinda too fairy tale but it can still happen, i'm sure)
There are reasons in every single thing that happen in this world.

So, i am vry sure something happened btw Temagi and Parameswara more than 800 yrs ago.
But the history i studied at school just stated that Parameswara wanted to overthrow Temagi, which for me is a very very foolish act.

Ok, i'm sorry that i really didnt do any extra reading before writing this. I dont know if any of our historian described what really happened but MOST Malaysian children only know what was taught at school, and that includes me.

p/s: Been long since i write. Haiz.. Exam in 2 weeks time, die die... A lot more to study.
I cant wait for 13th March, but I dont want 12th March to come. Can?
